It's June 30th and for some reason, after it was warm all day, there was a storm and there was hail. Weird.

I wonder if Tom Green ever found my magazine. Years ago, in college, I was in the radio broadcasting program and he was in the tv broadcasting one. One day, in a DJ magazine I had, they had an article about his new band (it was called Organized Rhyme). I lent him the magazine, but then he lost it. I tried to get another copy of the magazine from the publisher but they didn't have any left (the cover was in a Maestro Fresh Wes video so it would have been cool to have a copy). Hmmm... I wonder if Tom ever found it.

The weirdest thing happened on Friday night. I went to the drive thru at Tim Hortons (donut place) and started asking for a bagel and cream cheese. Before I finished, the guy says "I'm sorry, we don't have anymore product until 4 am." SO I say "Ok, thanks." So as we start to drive away, he says "Will there be anything else?"

It was funny.

Glad to see people in california were reading alt.fun.with.luc regularly.

I was reminded the other day of a trick to get rid of hiccups my parents had taught me when I was younger.

A couple of minutes ago, Sara tried it after having hicups for about 5 minutes and it worked.

This is what you do. Get a glass and fill it with water. Get a kitchen knife (not like a steak knife or anything - just one of those regular dull knives you use for butter or whatever)... Put the knife in the glass so the handle (not the sharp part of course) is sticking out of the glass.

Then, you drink the glass - the top of the handle of the knife will rest on your forehead (so basically, you'll have to tilt your head back as you drink the glass of water).

It seems to clear it right up - something about opening up the passageway or something. And it's better than asking someone to scare you.

So my half sister is visiting and she bought two packages of those Mr. Noodles things. I thought it was for later when we got home and had access to hot water. She started eating them in the car - that's how she eats them - right out of the package, not cooked. She offered me some and I said no way.

But then I thought, maybe I'll try a piece at least. Man, it was so good!!!! I think I'm addicted to them. I keep thinking about them and I splurged (they're 30 cents)and bought a package for myself.

I think I'll eat them tonight.

I got the weirdest fortune cookie today. It had two fortunes, which seems to happen often lately for some reason. That's not the odd part - it turns out the two fortunes are...

First fortune: Now is the time to try something new.
Second fortune (in the same cookie): The best prophet of the future is the past.

Now, don't they basically have opposite meanings? Maybe the guy who inserts the fortunes was a little confused and didn't know which one to put in there.. "New or not? Ah, who cares. I'll put both in there and he can choose the path to follow."

Oh well, it was cool. And the chinese food was great too!

Wow, the great day continues... my neighbour just brought me some stuff for lunch... ham, sliced tomatoes and cucumber, potato salad (I had a craving for potato salad all day yesterday but I was too lazy to make some) biscuits and a slice of apple pie... Mmmm!!!!!!

What a great morning! I am taking most of the day off (have a bit of work to do but that's it) so I woke up late, watched Jerry Springer for the first time in years, and now, my great day off continues...

Judge Mathis (on TV) is funny. That is all.

I got this e-mail from my uncle yesterday.

Unky unky is going awee
Musi musi thats the wee
Sorree soree can not stee
Monee monee
To bee or not to bee.

Then I talked to him on the phone and he was surprised I didn't understand what it meant. He said it was absolutely clear. He was serious, I think.

Apparently it means he's moving (going awee), I'm still not sure about the musi musi part, though I was writing to ask him for help with a song I'm working on. The third line apparently means he cannot stay. And in the last two lines, to bee or not to bee apparently means something about you need money no matter where you are or something like that. I still don't understand completely.

That Parti Bleue (Blue Party) campaign is funny. They went to Gatineau and since Sara was visiting there she went to one of the "events" they had. Then, on their site, I noticed a "news" item (in french) that says they reimbursed the taxes on CD's outside an HMV store - CD's, they say, are essential items and shouldn't have taxes (they add that neither should a list of other fun stuff)... but then I was thinking - couldn't that be a way to decrease piracy of music... Anyways, she took pictures with the leader of the party... maybe I'll take the time to put one of them online later.

Someone doesn't want me to see The Restaurant. I tried to tape the final episode this weekend while I watched COPS (you'd think I would have learned last week). Then, about 20 minutes into the show I decided to check the VCR to make sure it was taping right. It wasn't. I never set the VCR after I got cable. Missed the first part. So I taped COPS (the VCR was able to tape that without a different setting) and watched the rest of the show. I missed most of the season. But late last night, I noticed the show was playing on another channel... turns out they're playing the first show that aired last week (where I stopped the VCR by mistake after just about 20 minutes)... This is getting confusing. But at least I saw the end of that episode last night after all.

I finally got my clock delivered today. I had wanted to do my joke but he seemed like he was in a hurry. It didn't look like he had a lot of time. It's a cool clock, though - even a bit bigger than I expected.

What is proper grocery store etiquette? That bar that seperates the orders, are you supposed to put it yourself before your order or is the other person supposed to put it there? I usually end up putting it there before the order, and then to be nice, I put one after my order so the next person doesn't need to. But I always wonderif they think "Why is he doing that? Does he think his food will get germs from my food?" Or do they think "Wow, what a nice guy?" Or do they not even think about it and I have too much time on my hands when I wait in line?

Sara is a human weather channel. If you're like me, you think "if only those tv weather channels could tell me the temperature in my house." Well, all I have to do is touch Sara's nose. If our place is on the cool side, her nose will be cold. If it's perfect, her nose is warm. Can a nose be patented?

You know, I don't care about politics. I've always found it boring and I still do. It's funny that a beer company started the "Blue Party". It's in French, though. They don't seem to air the ads in english - just in Quebec. They want people to have more money, reduce taxes on inportant foods (cheezies in the television ad), have more parties, and all kinds of other things. You know, those things you dream of when you're a kid... 3 days weekends... the funny thing is I don't drink. But I'd vote for them.

So I thought it was just me that found that blogs are sort of similar to what I was doing ten years ago when I was posting in alt.fun.with.luc. Someone wrote an article about blogs and Usenet a while back. There was a post about it and a reply mentioning the similarities. And then, his own post about the topic. That's cool.

Ribs are good in spaghetti sauce. One of my neighbo(u)rs always feeds me. He'll come to the door with two thirds of a pie and say "here. I can't eat any more". He used to ask "Do you like [whatever food item he had]" but I like pretty well everything. So now he just offers. And today, he brought a big bowl of spaghetti sauce with italian sausage and ribs in it. It was good. I like ribs. And free things always taste better.

Where do you go when the cable guy is at your house? Do you hang around and risk getting on his nerves? Or do you go somewhere else and risk him thinking you're rude. Do you talk to him or do you let him work in peace?

I was just walking by and my TV was on. I looked and then stopped. I thought "Wow, that channel's really good today." Then I remembered I'm not using an antenna anymore. It's weird having cable after not having it for a year and a half.

Jason and I were probably the only people in the world without cable. Now Jason's alone. I have cable now!

I'm hungry. Maybe I should eat.

What??? I missed that much? According to NBC's site for The Restaurant 2, that guy Jeffrey decided to give the chef (Tony I think) a raise, and Rocco decided to fire him. I missed that much? I had been looking for some kind of recap (never noticed I cared that much) and it seems like not a lot of people were watching the show - and recaps are hard to find... Oh well, I missed a good episode I guess. Hopefully it will air Saturday.
